Not sure i can comment anymore than it works on a chromebook when accessed through chrome browser. Works on anything with a browser, while it doesn't scale well down to mobile, it's still "usable".

For 99% of everyday activities it works fine. It's slower than using running the filemaker desktop client, but it works. Don't expect to be modifying report designs or scripts through the browser though. Some exporting/Importing tasks maybe limited on a chromebook.

Staff are using it from home quite happily, though with doing reports, the keyboard shortcuts don't work like ctrl + n which of course opens a new tab, rather than what's expected in kamar.
